Sight Adjustment

The Standard RUGERĀ® MARK HI pistol is equipped with a rear sight which is adjustable for windage only. The rear sight can be drifted laterally in its dovetail on the top of the slide by tapping it with a wooden or plastic headed hammer or similar implement. The front sight is fixed. Target models are equipped with adjustable sights. Turning the top (elevation) sight adjustment screw clockwise lowers the impact of the shot. Turning the horizontal (windage) sight adjustment screw clockwise moves the impact of the shot to the left.


Top of front sight even with top of rear sight blade. Front sight centered in notch of rear sight blade. Target bull's-eye centered on top of front sight.
